Sunday Matters: Healthy?

Sunday Matters

There’s something you need to know about me. I am SO fascinated by pandemics. I really should have been a doctor or a scientist. This whole COVID-19 thing is something I could spend days researching.

At work, I’ve been tasked with creating some pages related to the issue and honestly, I do not mind but question why our campus doesn’t have a more formalized approach to emergencies in general.

That said, half my family thinks I am paranoid and I am SO not. Weeks before California declared anything I purchased some basic supplies but I do that all the time ever since the big Northridge quake. Now, you can’t get hand sanitizer anywhere so I am glad I did.

Also, it really makes me want to read The Stand again. Are you healthy right now? Do you feel okay? Are you at all concerned? The only thing that concerns me is travel. I am not planning to go anywhere, anytime soon but some people don’t have a choice and have to go for work, etc. I know there have been some co-workers here who have traveled to hot spots and have come back to work. Probably not the greatest idea.

Right Now:

All I want is some bacon with an egg over easy. Been craving this for awhile. I need to make it happen. Later this morning I am heading to youth group but nothing else planned for the day.

This Week:

My daughter has her choir concerts this week and one festival. We are seeing her perform on Friday and I will be working that concert as well. I don’t think I have anything else going on.

Reading:

I just started Miracle Creek.

Miracle Creek

Watching:

We are two episodes into Season 2 of The Crown. It’s very good.

Last week’s episode of The Walking Dead was great! That show struggles but if they can keep up the pace of last week’s episode the rest of the season ought to be good.

New Things I’ve Tried:

Have you tried Golden Milk? Basically, it’s a turmeric based drink. You can make it yourself or there are plenty of companies that make ready-to-enjoy instant drinks. Anyway, turmeric is supposed to help with inflammation and gut health. I tried it, enjoyed it but of course haven’t had enough of it to make any claims but it was a nice alternative to coffee and with all the health benefits, would be a good drink to have now and then.

Grateful for:

  • Hand sanitizer
  • Coffee creamer
  • Awesome book packages from publishers
  • Spotify

What have you read that’s really good? I got weighed down a little by The Hunting Party and it threw me off my two books a week pace.

Sunday Matters: That Was Fast

Sunday Matters

February came and went. Overall, it was a decent month. Since some of our activities have been reduced and the calendar is in a more manageable state. I’ve been able to cook more, read more, and just relax at home. Something I’ve really missed for the past few years.

Right Now:

I use my YouVersion Bible app a lot. This morning I am going to break out my actual Bible and maybe do a little journaling. I don’t like my penmanship. Which is why I never journal. I actually write neatly but in all block letters and it’s tiresome for my hand. LOL. I love the look of a well-used Bible though, one full of notes and the like so I am going to try to pick this up again.

This Week:

I have one little scheduling conflict for Monday which I will have to figure out. Outreach conflicts with my daughter’s Sign Language class and her teacher keeps ending the class early which means I have to leave in the middle of Outreach. Thinking that maybe I should take a break from Outreach until this class is over in May.

I have to get this kid in the car for driving practice. She’s not a big fan of it. But we want her to be licensed by June. So my goal this week is more practice. She’s actually pretty good when I can get her to practice.

Reading:

I finished The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley. It wasn’t what I thought it would be. I expected more of a suspense, thriller type story. It wasn’t that at all but I still enjoyed it. My review should post this week.

What do I read next? I feel like my pace slowed a bit since this last book wasn’t as much of a page turner as I expected it to be.

Watching:

The Crown continues to be great. We finished Season 1. On to Season 2.

The Walking Dead opened with the dumbest episode ever and included a seriously cringy scene between Alpha and Negan. Ew. I can’t unsee that.

New Things I’ve Tried:

When I went to Lush the other day they gave me a sample of a vegan facial cleanser called Ultraplant. I really love it. It’s one of those oil based balms that melts makeup off and it smells like oranges. I love it. I am using my sample sparingly. I plan to purchase it when my sample runs out.

Grateful for:

  • Friends who write me letters.
  • My pup’s little corn chip paws.
  • Easy to use home hair dye.
  • Trusted friends I can talk politics with.

That’s all I have. How was your week? What are you looking forward to in March? At the end of the month we are closed for Cesar Chavez day. Yay!
